Still Traveling: Magical Morocco More Than Marrakech
Date(s) - 05/03/2021
About this Event
Would you like to still travel? Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!
Let us whisk you away for an “armchair adventure” on an interesting, educational, fun & live, guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door …even beyond the grocery store!
Forget the long, masked airplane ride, we take you across the time zones by Zoom where a local professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore sites or topics. Live Q&A, photos, graphics & video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!
Your ticket purchase helps support our special guests – professional guides – who are mostly or completely out of work.
Made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Senior Excursion fund of the Jewish Federation of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin & Sonoma Counties.
Morocco: More than Marrakech
Four Mondays, May 3, 10, 24, 31 (no “trip” on 5/17)
11:00am-12:15pm (PST), 12:00-1:15pm (MST), 1:00-2:15pm (CST), 2:00-3:15pm (EST)
Many visitors go to Morocco to visit its most famous city, Marrakech. But, the country holds countless interesting treasures throughout the land from its coasts to the deserts!
Pour yourself a cup of mint tea (click here for a recipe) and let Trip Leader James Sokol zoom you away on our virtual “trips” to this magical North African country, so different from most Arab-dominant countries. Morocco has its own unique, fascinating culture – a blend of indigenous Berber, Arabian, Sub-Saharan African & European (Christian & Jewish) influences. In this new series on Morocco, join our wonderful, local, professional guide for visits around his diverse & vibrant country to discover wonders that await!

- Imperial Cities: Fes, Meknes & Rabat (May 3)
- Northern Highlights: Tangier, Chefchouen & Volubilis (May 10)
- Oasis/Desert Life & Customs: Zagora & Draa Valley (May 24)
- Coastal Treasures: Essaouira & Casablanca (May 31)

The Fine Print:
Fortunately, we’ve had very few issues, but just to be clear…
Your Zoom “Event Link”: The Zoom event link will be emailed to all registered guests 2-days prior to the first “tour.” To help it land in your “inbox,” please add the following emails to your contacts:
- James Sokol — firstname.lastname@example.org
- JCC Alliance — email@example.com
Registrants are requested to make sure the email w/link has arrived by the evening of May 1st. If the email does not arrive, please see “Troubleshooting” below.
The email w/link will be re-sent to all registrants about 2-hours prior to the first tour. NB: However, if it landed somewhere other than in your inbox the first time, it will probably do the same later.
Have a Comcast email? Please refer to this guide: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/spam-filters-and-email-blocking-new-experience.
Troubleshooting: We will do our best to remedy any issues. Registrants who have NOT received the email w/link are asked to check their email “junk” and “spam” folders. If found, please move the email to your inbox. If the email/link is still not there, please contact James (see below) immediately.
Late Troubleshooting: We will try our best – but cannot guarantee – help with Zoom links to guests contacting James less than 2-hours prior to the event.
Live Only: In agreement with our guides, artists, instructors, special guests, etc., events are not recorded. Make-up sessions are unavailable. Credit/refund is not given for missed events.
Liability: While we will do our best to remedy any issues, The Osher Marin JCC & its Program Partners cannot be held responsible for 1) issues related to Eventbrite or Zoom, 2) ticket buyers not following the instructions above, nor 3) packing, shipping, or deliver services of food/beverages not received in time for tasting events.
Don’t ya just hate “the fine print?!!”
